On the Coyness of God

Posted August 27, 2014 By John C Wright

I’m fairly certain, if God is indeed maximally good and therefore would do everything he could to draw people, free agents, towards him, the greatest good, that logically, the best option would be to reveal himself not just occasionally, but always so that there can be no doubt as to his existence. For though the […]

Christians in the Pantheon called Life

Posted August 26, 2014 By John C Wright

A reader with the name Metzengerstein, which sounds like it might actually be a real name for once, writes and comments: It is an interesting fix we Christians find ourselves in. On the one hand we should like to argue that Capitalism is a better system than any other by virtue of its results and […]

Prayer as a Deadly Weapon

Posted August 21, 2014 By John C Wright

I am mentioned in a rather flattering connection by the first ever podcast of the 1P5 podcast. But the rest of the meditation by Mr Steve Skojec is so well worth hearing, that I will overcome my natural modesty to link to his podcast. It is well worth hearing. https://soundcloud.com/onepeterfive/1p5-podcast-e01#t=26:55 or here it is from […]

FW &SF, or, On Faith and Works in Science Fiction

Posted August 1, 2014 By John C Wright

The fine folks at First Peter Five web journal (or 1P5 to you) asked me to contribute an essay explaining if and how and why my faith influences my science fiction writing. The editor asked to to answer in a thousand words or less, but we all know that was not going to happen. The […]

Polyatheism is Disbelief in Many Gods

Posted July 26, 2014 By John C Wright

A reader with the grandiose name of Zaklog the Great calls me to the witness stand. He asks: When you were an atheist yourself, did you consider Christians in particular your enemies, or was Christianity merely one (comically wrong) religion among many? If Christians in particular were the problem, why so? Second, having heard the […]

They have an engine called the Press

Posted July 14, 2014 By John C Wright

Ransom, the Director at St Anne’s, explains to Merlin the Magician why it is that modern people cannot overthrow their evil rulers: “They have an engine called the Press by which the people are deceived.” That goes double when the Press is discussing Catholic matters; triple when it is an English paper; and quadruple when […]

The Evil Queen and Catholic Communion

Posted June 26, 2014 By John C Wright

I have been wondering about this topic myself a great deal recently. I am more than delighted to hear this anecdote: Over at Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter Nation (http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/06/24/gary-oldman-likes-the-double-standard-word-police-about-as-much-as-i-do/#comment-68911) a commenter named KHorn writes:   True story: my daughter was in school with Pelosi’s grandson from K-8th grade at a Catholic school. The Tuesday before […]

Strength, Weakness, Meekness

Posted June 6, 2014 By John C Wright

Patrick Richardson pens a spirited defense of manhood in an article well worth reading: http://www.miamiok.com/commentary/article_585ba993-8b79-5db3-92b7-bccb3c1114c4.html I agree with what he says but say he does not say enough. Feminism is not merely the enemy of masculinity but also the foe femininity, because it is the foe of romance. Mr. Richardson is right to regret the […]

Hell

Posted May 7, 2014 By John C Wright

Soldiers of Christ, this is required reading. This is the face of hell. This is what we are fighting. Don’t flinch. Go look. Civilians, women, children, do not look. You will never be able to remove these images from your mind. http://themattwalshblog.com/2014/05/07/this-is-my-positive-abortion-story/ On second thought, perhaps you should look, ladies. Take a good, hard, look. […]

Total Conversion

Posted April 21, 2014 By John C Wright

Vox Day looked up somewheres online and found my conversion story. Here it is: http://voxday.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-testimony-of-john-c-wright.html For those of you who are interested in hearing the same story told impromptu, without notes, and curious about what my voice sounds like, here is a podcast of a radio program where I was interviewed on my conversion experience: […]
